I had no choice where to go. Fainted and hit my head. Ambulance folk great to me. (Reason for 2 stars rather than 1 for Sentara.) ER was packed! Spent 7 hours in an ER room mostly taking up space. Doc used 4 staples to close my head wound with no pain injections given for the excruciating stapling procedure!! Said pain injections would take too long to work and hurt more. NOT possible. As a 'cardiac patient' probably had better care and a quiet room. Quality of food was horrendous. Small slab of mystery meat stuck to stale white bread. Day shift RN, etc. care was much better than night shift. No sleep, of course. The night nurses were loud and argued continuously at their station. The worst part of the stay by far, they probably couldn't read so they wouldn’t bother to gauge my progress notes with my daily mobility improvements. They put the bed alarm back on! So be sure to stick to your guns, insist on continuity of care, and don't sign anything absolving them of liability. Avoidance from passive-aggressive, lazy, power-freak night Charge Nurse wouldn’t come talk to me at my insistence. Foreign-national night shift staff malfeasance with rude superiority complex trying to hide gross incompetence and nasty office politics. Long 12-hour shifts where news travels fast if you assert yourself to make them stick with the program. Don’t give in! Three different docs in charge over two days. Couldn't get a discharge transport orderly so the RN did it.
